Boston Red Sox Photos: Carl Yastrzemski Throws First Pitch To Grandson Mike.

Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski threw out a ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park on Wednesday night to his grandson, Mike Yastrzemski, currently an outfielder on the San Francisco Giants. A day before meeting on the field for the pitch, the two Yastrzemski’s took part in an interview for MLB Network with host Peter Gammons.

Game 1 of the 2018 World Series is in the book and it goes to the Red Sox! Overall, I didn’t have the best night shooting. Should have shot loose on the Nuñez home run to get the full reaction. But it’s all good, we look ahead to game two tonight.

Yesterday, several Boston Red Sox alumni, including Carl Yastrzemski, Bob Montgomery, Dick Berardino, and Ted Lepcio, were back at Fenway Park to take part in the Genesis Foundation field day.

Here are a few nice moments from the day. Always great to have these guys around!

Photos: Boston Red Sox 1975 40-Year Reunion.

Here are photos from the 40-year anniversary and reunion of the 1975 Boston Red Sox team.

I’m a week late to post these, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t forget about them. I obviously wasn’t around for the 1975 World Series run, but I understand the significance of it, and know that it was and continues to be a big deal to a lot of people.

It’s neat to be up close to so many heroes of the past – Tiant, Fisk, Yastrzemski, and Rice to name a few. Shooting things like this remind me that baseball, and sport in general, is timeless.

A great game by center fielder Mookie Betts and a Red Sox victory helped make for a great night.

Game two at Fenway begins in a few hours. More to come.

Last Friday, Fenway Park celebrated it’s 100th Anniversary with an elaborate pre-game ceremony followed by a game against the New York Yankees. The game itself was quite anticlimactic, ending in a pretty bad loss for the Red Sox, but that was definitely overshadowed by the magnitude of the milestone this ballpark had reached.

I was honored to be a small part of the day, and I was thrilled to witness this important moment in baseball history. Johnny Pesky, Carl Yastrzemski, Bobby Doerr, Jim Rice, Pedro Martinez, Nomar Garciaparra, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, and Terry Francona were just a few of the over 200 Boston Red Sox alumni from all generations that were on hand to celebrate at Fenway. What a sight.

I shot the pre-game ceremony from the first base photo pit, and had a blast. It’s easily one of my best memories from my time working in baseball. 

And as chaotic and busy as the day was leading up to the ceremony, I learned a lot about the logistics of shooting big-time events like these. There’s lots of planning that goes into organizing a huge corral of pro photographers on hand, and being part of that planning process was a valuable experience for me. 

There’s so much more I could say, but I think I’ll let the images do the talking. Click the photos to enlarge, if you’d like! And, check the Boston Red Sox Facebook Page to view their Timeline cover photo shot by yours truly.

I’d love to hear your thoughts about this milestone, the ceremony, the recent Red Sox performance, these photos, or anything else!
